Real People Portraits with Bobbi Lane & Lee Varis

February 9, 2019, 9:00 am - February 10, 2019, 5:00 pm


The dynamic duo of Bobbi Lane, the Mistress of Light, and Lee Varis, the Sultan of Skin take you on a photographic adventure to master the art of creating flattering and effective portraits of real people. You will learn the essential techniques for photographing normal people in the real world, without fancy wardrobe, expensive hair and makeup, or extreme and difficult retouching.

Bobbi will show how to use corrective techniques to overcome challenging subjects and Lee will take the results and refine and finish the image into a marketable photograph.

Shooting tethered into the computer, we demonstrate comprehensive lighting techniques and effective posing, helping make the most pleasing portraits of difficult subjects: thin or heavy, spectacled, young or old, folliclely challenged, red or wrinkled. Lee will take the captured images to the next level with Lightroom and Photoshop enhancement techniques for quick fixes and complete makeovers that don’t require special artistic talent, but instead utilize the power inherent in the basic software without extra plug-ins or extensions.

These techniques apply to all kinds of portraits: personal headshots, business, couples and families. Learning these skills help you make stronger and more salable images.
